Happy new year from the UN Decade of Healthy Ageing!

When we entered 2022, it would have been difficult to imagine the combined impacts of COVID-19, conflict, and climate change on older people around the world. While the current challenges are partly due to exceptional circumstances, the physical and social barriers to health and well-being in older age have long been understood.

As we all take stock at the start of 2023, let's consider how we can build on the great work that was done in 2022 and collaboratively invest – in whatever way we can – in changing how we think, feel, and act towards ageing; cultivating age-friendly environments; creating integrated and responsive health care systems and services; and ensuring access to long-term care for older people who need it.

By acting together across these four areas, we can add quality to quantity and give all people the chance to lead a meaningful life, no matter their age.

Together, we can make every year count – not by the numbers, but by how we live and grow in between. #AddingLifeToYears
